I'm trying to use rpcinfo accross an internal network. When I try it on the machine I'm going to use as a NFS server (, it works fine:
rpcinfo -p
    program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
    100003    2   udp   2049  nfs
    100003    3   udp   2049  nfs
    100021    1   udp   1026  nlockmgr
    100021    3   udp   1026  nlockmgr
    100021    4   udp   1026  nlockmgr
    100005    1   udp   1027  mountd
    100005    1   tcp   1024  mountd
    100005    2   udp   1027  mountd
    100005    2   tcp   1024  mountd
    100005    3   udp   1027  mountd
    100005    3   tcp   1024  mountd
    100024    1   udp   1028  status
    100024    1   tcp   1025  status
However, from my client ( machine, I get:
rpcinfo -p
[wait a while]
rpcinfo: can't contact portmapper: rpcinfo: RPC: Timed Out
However, portmapper is running (from server):
rpcinfo -p
   program vers proto   port
    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper
    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
The machines can ping each other.
Any ideas?
Thanks, Taj
